The world of Grand Theft Auto Online continues to expand with more content, and next week’s addition brings more luxury to your character’s life with the Executives and Other Criminals pack.
Obviously, a life of luxury isn’t complete without some nice real estate, and this pack offers a new selection of apartments, houses in the rich neighborhood of Vinewood Hills, and to top it all off, a Super Yacht to host your extravagant parties. But it’s not all just about living the sportin’ life. Some players have a group to lead, and this pack allows you to use the yacht as a base of operations.
Minions in your group can be hired as bodyguards to protect your interests or simply accompany you on important missions. But other organizations will also attempt to take down your empire. However, you can counter with an array of new vehicles, such as the boat and helicopter that come with the yacht (which also includes its own missile defense system, obviously), or roam the streets of Los Santos with fear and style in a limousine fitted with a gun turret.
Some existing game modes, such as King of the Castle, will automatically be updated to work with the new organization structure when it comes out next week. In addition, a new mode called Extraction Adversary Mode will be available, wherein players take on the role of bodyguards to extract the VIP from a crashed plane before the opposing team, the Hit Squad, arrives and kills the target.
As a sign of the times, the Executives and Other Criminals pack will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, forsaking those playing on the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360. It seems that with the continuing waves of content for online gameplay, the previous generation of consoles is slowly being abandoned to keep the development process short and focused on the PC and the current iteration of Sony and Microsoft’s gaming devices.

While it can turn into a giant death match...it all depends on the session (and players to that affect). Last few sessions I've played, not only were there alot of players...but it seemed very team heavy; alot of heists, alot of players riding together and getting into trouble after the events. Thats what makes GTA V Online special to me.
And, PEW PEWin' other players randomly is part of the fun :)
Not to mention their multi-player mission system is still garbage.
